I have had this beer at the Brewery on tap and it was very good (4.5). At that time they were still working on the IBU's . I then picked up a six pack of bottles at a local (Madison WI) store, the taste was near as good 3.5. I had hoped this was because they still working on it. I was going to look for it again this December and see if the bottles improved.

Maybe I'm being nit-picky, but the bottle I had wasn't as well-balanced as other black IPAs I've tried, such as Lena Brewery's Scrap Iron Black IPA....seemed overly heavy on the porter/stout malt flavor and not as hoppy/citrusy as I'd hoped. Still a very drinkable beer.

Just an IPA, the "black" not such a big deal

Very dark brown with noticeable sediment, thick creamy brown head. Smell has light roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and caramel notes. Hint of citrusy hops. Taste is stronger than expected from the smell, heavy on the roasted malts, toasted coffee, and chocolate. Decently bitter, but more of a dark chocolate/coffee bitterness than hops. Citrusy hops are more apparent on the clean finish. Goes down smooth. Medium body and carbonation. Great flavors, but a bit to much coffee/chocolate for my taste.
